Janet Wareing, a matron at the care home in Lytham, paid tribute to the veteran:"Harold was a lovely character, very strong-willed and independent.
"He was quite a private man, and he loved reading his Daily Telegraph every morning.
"We have already been contacted by military veterans who are intending to come, even though they have never met him. We've been told one group is looking to bring around 200 people to the service, which would be fantastic."
